After God questioned Job about numerous things, He gave Job an opportunity to respond.  “Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it.” (Job 40:2)  At an earlier time Job had commented that he desired to talk to God about his issues.  “Surely I would speak to the Almighty, And I desire to reason with God.” (Job 13:3)  Now, after all that God had said to him, Job must have been humbled a little bit.  “Then Job answered the LORD and said:  “Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth.  I have spoken once, and I will not answer; twice, but I will proceed no further.” (Job 40:3-5)  God desires each one of us to have a humble heart.  “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” (James 4:10)
